Raytheon has integrated its latest DeepStrike missile container with the US Army’s M270A1 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). The long-range DeepStrike missile was designed and developed to meet the US Army’s Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) requirement.

The integration of the DeepStrike missile pod, containing two missiles side-by-side, was carried out at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in July this year. Jane’s understands that the integration was successfully carried out with a M270A1 MLRS in US Army service and a M142 HIMARS in United States Marine Corps (USMC) service.

Raytheon Advanced Missile Systems vice-president Dr Thomas Bussing explained that the latest advancement in the development of the DeepStrike missile is in response “to the US Army’s desire to accelerate its PrSM programme”.
